  • 1 1/2 cups milk I use whole milk
  • 1 cup cornmeal I use yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup butter unsalted is my preference, melted & cooled to room temperature
  • 4 ounces diced jalapenos drained, optional
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese optional
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place 9-inch cast-iron skillet in oven to warm it up while the oven is preheating.

  2. In a small mixing bowl add the milk and cornmeal, mix together and let sit for 10 minutes.

  3. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl. Beat cornmeal mixture, eggs, and butter into the flour mixture until you have a smooth batter, about 1 minute.

  4. Use cooking oil spray, coat the hot skillet before pouring in the batter.

  5. Pour batter into the skillet.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 18 to 23 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.
